It was a long road to get to this point, but now Married at First Sight stars Jamie Otis and Doug Hehner have it all — including a beautiful nursery for their three-month-old daughter, Henley, which they’re revealing exclusively to Life & Style. “It’s definitely my favorite room in the house,” Jamie raves.
And they had help decorating it from an unusual source: their “frans,” the term Jamie uses for fans who have become their friends. “Our fran Nevia Ortiz sent us beautiful paper flowers as a gift for our daughter and those became our statement wall,” Jamie, 31, tells Life & Style. “We’ve been blessed by our friends, family, and frans because the only things we bought in the nursery were the dresser and curtains. Everything else was a gift for Henley.”
And Henley is the ultimate gift to her parents. Jamie tragically miscarried a baby boy four months into her pregnancy in 2016, but she and Doug, 35, didn’t lose faith. “I feel like Henley is a miracle baby,” Jamie says. Adds Doug, “It was love at first sight when I first saw her heartbeat during the first ultrasound.” Their love came through in the effort they put into Henley’s nursery. “I was so picky about everything,” Jamie says. “We rearranged that room a zillion times because I wanted it to be perfect.” What’s her favorite item in the room? “Probably the rocking chair,” Jamie says. “And we have angel wings above her window, as a symbolic reminder of her big brother in heaven watching her.”
